within a very narrow range all 4 and

it is difficult to induce the trade to
take the natural run of sizes and
grades. This 1b always the case when
the supply of any glvn commodity is
large. ' The barreled apple sections
Colorado, with her large crop, is of
fering inducements to the trade, all of
which tends to makt the bujrs more
exacting than they are when supplies
are limited. The exchange is endea

various of its members and upon con
summation of the deals, details will
be announced. , Meanwhile, the ex

MENTAL MACHINERY.
Shut Off All th Powtr When You Quit.
. Work at Night.
It la a preut thing to learn to shut
off the mental steam when you quit
work. eayB Orison Swett Marden in
Success Magazine. Wbnt would you
think of a factory munupor wbo would
leave all of bis power turned on after
the operators had left the factory, the
delicate machinery running every
where, pounding Itself to pieces, grind
ing out its delicate bearings without
producing anything? Many of us do
not turn otT our mental power after
we are through producing or creating
for the day. We carry our business
home, take It to bed with us, think,
plan, worry nnd waste precious ener
gy in all sorts of ways. In superfluous
thinking, foolish worrying that pro
duces nothing, but prtnds out the ex
quisite mental mnfhlnery and unfits
It for the next day's work. It is a
great art to learn to shut off power
when through our day's, work, so that
we can oil our mental machinery, re
fresh our minds and recuperate our
selves; so that we can po to the next
day's work completely relnvlgorated.
Many men seem to think that they
are accomplishing something If they
keep . their minds on business even
when not at work, but they really ac
complish less than nothing because
they are wasting precious mental en-
rifor. the focusing of the mind, which
Is imperative for creating purposes.
VON MOLTKE'S METHODS.

' ; Walnuts as Food. ' .
The ancients held the walnut In high
esteem. Mortals could and did exist
on acorns, but walnuts . were so .de
licious In taste and flavor, ao palatable
and nutritious, that they were revered
as food only for tbe gods to dine upon.
Modern Investigation and modern cus
toms bave popularized the uses of tbe
walnut to such an extent that it is
now regarded not only as a luxury, but
as a food of great nutritfve value. 'A
chemical analysis of the nut Shows
that It Is six times as nutritious as
meat. No vegetable or fruit, with the
possible exception of tbe olive, can be
compared with tbe walnut as a strength
giving and fat producing food. All
nuts are possessed of elements of nu
trition, but tbe highest in rank is the
walnut Manchester Guardian.
